The Long Barn Pet-Friendly Cottage description

Holiday home
The Long Barn is a delightful barn conversion, close to the village of Goatland near Whitby in North Yorkshire, and benefits from glorious views from the garden. This cottage can sleep eight people in four bedrooms, including one super king-size double with en-suite facilities, one double, one twin and one king-size double with zip/link beds and Juliet balcony, and there is also a family bathroom. The rest of the cottage is made up of a kitchen with dining area and woodburner, a utility room, a sitting room with a woodburner, and a wet room. Outside this cottage there is ample off road parking and communal grounds with furniture. The Long Barn is a lovely cottage in a fantastic location in North Yorkshire.

The idyllic village of Goathland is set on the north eastern edge of the North York Moors National Park. It is surrounded by the rugged open moorlands which provide excellent walking country and on which sheep graze freely. The village has been popularised by the television programme Heartbeat. At the bottom of the village lies the station for the famous North York Moors Steam Railway. Here you may catch a train to nearby Pickering and relax as the train winds its way through the moors. Goathland is also within easy reach of the East Coast towns of Whitby and Staithes, making it a great holiday base.

The North York Moors National Park covers 554 square miles, with landscape ranging from heather-clad moorland and deep secluded dales, to the cliffs and coves of the magnificent coastline making it a haven for walkers.

The location was very quiet and remote which was great. It was very unique to have steam trains at the bottom of the garden.

The Long Barn had it all a beautiful house with top quality furniture equipped with everything you could possibly need, all set in a stunning location.

A peaceful setting with fabulous views and the North Yorkshire Moors Steam trains running past the end of the garden.

We had such a brilliant family gathering here. A real retreat in a beautiful and well equipped place. It felt like home. Everything we needed and more. We also loved sitting by the fire watching the steam trains.

The holiday was great - the location, facilities and even the weather. Couldn't ask for a more ideal holiday cottage, will definitely be returning.

The Long Barn was a superb conversion of a traditional barn giving lots of space for the numbers of people it could sleep. Having three generations there for a fabulous Christmas, there was always enough space for everyone to do whatever they wanted. I think the use and availability of space and the way The Long Barn was set out is one of its features that will draw us back again as an extended family.

We all really enjoyed our stay at The Long Barn. The cottage was in a lovely peaceful location with fabulous views and it was great to watch the steam trains go by. We were able to enjoy walks straight from the property and we can't wait to go back.

The setting was beautiful and the property spacious and well equipped. It was lovely to have the steam trains running past the bottom of the garden. Walks from the house were an added bonus and ideal with our dog.

This was our 2nd visit to Long Barn and we thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our stay. The place is just perfect to unwind and is located in such an idyllic setting. The under floor heating and the log burners make the place so warm and cosy whilst an ice cold wind was blowing outside. The place is immaculate and contains everything you need. We ventured on several walks from the doorstep and advise the 3 mile circular walk which takes you on a lovely scenic stroll. The owners and the housekeeper were superb. Will be visiting again very soon.

This was our second visit to this location, enjoyed the first visit so much we took my brother and sister-in-law with us this time. The remoteness of this cottage is a real getaway. A brilliant holiday cottage in a wonderful location.
Mrs Griffiths

Perfect accommodation, very spacious. Lovely area, great walks, friendly locals. Kids loved seeing the trains go past. Will definitely return!

This is a beautiful property in a marvellous quiet location. It was generous with its space. The heating worked well so we were nice and cosy. It was very well equipped and very good value. We'd hope to be able to stay there again at some point.
Mr Thompson

The cottage is in a lovely location. It is decorated to a high standard, a home from home. Very well equipped with everything you need to make your holiday as magical as possible. A massive thanks to the owners for making the effort to ensure the holiday went so smoothly. Highly recommended.

Brilliant location for Coast and country. Accommodation a very high standard.
Mrs Gaulton
June 2014
We thoroughly enjoyed the peaceful location, watching the steam/diesel trains go by and the accessibility to the coast and moors. Long Barn is a beautiful converted barn with lots of space for six people. Loved waking up to the views of the hills. It's fully equipped with white goods, crockery and cutlery.
Mr Kirby

The property is finished to a very high quality standard, nothing has been left out and the fixtures and fittings are of the very best quality. There is plenty of space for 4 couples and the kitchen and lounge feels really cosy with the log burners lit. The location is perfect for a relaxed break and if you like heritage railways, having them pass the bottom of the garden only yards away, couldn't be better, For walkers, you are right in the middle of many varied routes and vehicle access is really easy. We shall definitely return to this idyllic property, full marks all round.
Mr Robey

A very good barn conversion with quality fittings. An excellent comfortable base to explore the area with the added bonus of the NYMHR track at the end of the garden.
Mrs Davies
October 2014
A very large barn which at the same time felt cosy.
Mrs Hextall
April 2014
The cottage was in a lovely position with regard to walking and the steam train running past the house. The cottage was spacious and very warm and cosy. A great house for sharing with family or friends, overall the best property we have rented in this area.
Mrs Minney
September 2014
The views were fantastic, and the fact that the NYMR ran along the bottom of the garden was a delight for old and young, which provided us with many happy memories. The Long Barn felt like home. The peace and quiet took some getting used to but this just made the evening more relaxing. Will go again in the future.
Mrs Ragg
May 2014
The Barn had an ideal layout for a family holiday, the location and facilities were excellent. A good base for visiting the coast or inland with walking trails from the doorstep and steam trains passing the door.
Mr Jenkinson

A great property in a beautiful location. We had a fabulous time, and having the North York Moors Railway at the bottom of the garden was a real treat. We have already booked to return to The Long Barn in 2014.

The Long Barn is in a beautiful quiet location, off the beaten track, and next to the North Yorkshire Railway. The cottage is spacious and well equipped, everything you could possibly want is provided. We did not want to leave, and will be going back again next year!

Beautiful property and location. The cottage had everything you needed, and was very clean. Pictures do not do it justice. Would recommend to anyone.

It was possibly the best family holiday I have ever had. My daughters came with their partners, as well as my husband and I - setting was perfect as was the cottage. All I can say is thank you!!
Mrs Watson

The long barn is excellent the owners have thought of everything and I would thoroughly recommend this holiday cottage.
Mr Mrs Chapman
August 2013
A fabulous place to stay. We had a wonderful extended family holiday. The Long Barn had everything we needed and more.The North Yorks Railway passing at the bottom of the garden was very special. From 7 to 70 we all enjoyed our stay.
Miss Ashmore
August 2013
We were impressed with the high standard of the property and were surprised how spacious and well-equipped it was. The location was stunning, and we loved waving to the steam trains passing at the bottom of the garden. We had a truly memorable holiday at the Long Barn.

August 2016
booked the long barn and orchard cottage age range from three to seventy ,absolute great place to enjoy north yorkshire,pity about the scrambling bikes on the footpath to the village of goathland which has a fantastic hotel with great food and drink .the steam trains passing at the bottom of the garden was a joy
October 2015
This is a lovely recent barn conversion. It impresses as soon as you step through the door. Lovely and cosy with efficient heating. Well furnished with a massive kitchen diner. You can walk straight from the door. The thing that makes it for me is the NYM Railway passing the bottom of the garden. Sleeps eight in comfort with three bathrooms although the downstaires one is quite small. Excellent value off season and cosy whatever the weather. This was my second stay and I have booked a third for 2016.

We stayed here as a family of 8 + dog (4 adults & 4 children). This barn conversion is well thought out catering to all our family needs. It is set in a beautiful location and the joy of seeing the train pass the bottom of the garden did not fade with both young and old guests. The owners were friendly and helpful both in person and with information that they provided. The only slightly negative is the garden/grass area does still need some work (which the owners are currently working on) but when you have the beautiful views as far as the eye can see it does not take anything away from this fabulous holiday rental. The pictures around the barn walking you through the seasons only added to the romance that I have for this property.
March 2015
In a nutshell this cottage was perfect! We have had the pleasure of staying in both this cottage and it's sister cottage "The Orchard" and both homes do the owners justice. The cleanliness and the attention to detail are second to none. We will definitely be planning another trip to either of these wonderful cottages many thanks for a fantastic stay.
August 2015
We travelled as a family group including a baby to this wonderful, if fairly remote, barn. Directions were comprehensive and we found the barn easily. It is situated down a gated roadway which was well maintained and no problem for a family car. The property itself is very large and well appointed with everything needed for a great family holiday. There are four large bedrooms, one en suite, and a large family bathroom plus ground floor wet room. There is a lounge with woodburner and a further seating area with woodburner in the kitchen/dining room. Plenty of space for a large group with two TVs at opposite ends of the house. Wifi is available but mobile signals are virtually non-existent. A travel cot and highchair are available but I would recommend taking your own mattress pad as there isn't one available with the cot. The outside space is fairly basic but steam trains do pass the garden on a regular basis throughout the day. The surrounding moorland is a delight and the barn is within easy reach of Whitby and the coast. I would recommend a visit to the Falling Foss tea gardens at Sneaton Forest - reached by foot only and not suitable for buggies or wheelchairs.

We liked the first class accommodation at Long Barn and the quality of everything.
July 2014
Superbly appointed cottage in a rural location in the North Yorkshire Moors National Park about 1 mile from the pretty village of Goathland. The heritage North Yorkshire Moors railway passes the bottom of the large garden with regular steam trains each day. We stayed with three other couples and there was ample room for all of us, great log burners (they even provide a good stock of wood) a modern kitchen with everything for 8 people including farmhouse dining table/chairs, 2x TV's. Garden furniture was provided and it's set in large well kept grounds, everthing was imaculate, a real 10 out of 10. This property ceretainly lived up to it's description in every way and plenty of parking space, the owners are friendly and gave us lots of tips/info to make our stay perfect, we will certainly return.
